I wanna unlink a symbol so I can make changes to just that element and not the rest. The tutorials says right click - Ungroup symbol but this doesn't help. The changes becomes global to that symbol anyhow. However, when I have only ONE instance of the same symbol in my document it works. As soon as I have more than one the option to Ungrop symbol is partly there, some symbols have that option in the context menu and some don't. So what's going on?
Also: There is a huge bug in XD for W10 in terms of symbols. When I have multiple copies of one symbol open at the same time and choose to select them all and delete them in one go from delete on the keyboard, then the symbols get's deleted from the symbols panel as well! In other words its totally gone.
Sorry to hear you are having trouble unlinking the component. Symbols are component now. I am unable to reproduce the behavior at my end. I am able to unlink the component in XD. Please see the attached screenshot
Please let me know if this is what you're looking for. If no, please share the screenshot or video of the workflow. I will try my best to help.
